By the way, just a bit about me if anyone is wondering who the heck i am.

Im an experienced hacker and app developer for android devices. For the past 2 years i have been using the very problematic LG Thrive, which takes more work to make the roms work, than to bring the moon down to earth! My device is almost dead so i bought the HTC First. Ive been rooting and hacking android devices for many people including teachers at school and friends.

This is a totaly new device for me, and is a bit more complicated to root. Im going to try super one click on it ad see how it goes, or maybe z4root. Because i really dont feel like unlocking the darn bootloader and doing everything manually. As soon as i get it all done i will be posting a tutorial on my blog and here on xda for the new comers. Thats just what i usualy do.

Thanks for accepting me into your community guys.

The kernel is done, I'll push that to GitHub in a few min. It's gonna be 3.4.49

Now the device folders and vendor stuff. I'll probably end up building it tomorrow.

All the repos for this project are here: https://github.com/htc-first
Once I'm done with it all, I'll see if CM will be willing to accept it and make it an officially maintained device.

The thing is, the lg oo can't run 4.4. Ever. Kit Kat requires alot more ram than our phones have. That's why miui v5 won't work and stuff. So time to move on to another phone. Get one cheap brand new from cellularcountry.com

i found another correlation with the HTC One Mini and the HTC First
the Snapdragon 400 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_(system_on_chip)#Snapdragon_400
take a look at the screenshot attached here.
1. this means we are capable of overclock beyond 1.7 GHz, so 2 ghz could be possible
2. that means if anything we can just use drivers from the Mini if anything
3. not only can we port cm from the mini, but we could probably port sense 5 as well, and very very successfully integrate the two giving cm a sense 5 skin.

im not sure if there would be alot of demand for a sense 5 skinned cm rom, but i guess its something new. oh and JMZ's kernel allows the htc first to overclock upto 1.7Ghz, if you're into that, i think the phone is snappy enough as is.

Yeah sense 5 would be eww, sense 4 already uses 15% more ram than stock rom imagine sense 5 lol

    ya it is. and there is one already in the forums so rashed has it and is already working on a test build...he is definately very quick at this...so test build will be out quite soon! :good:

    I'm not that fast, but this phone isn't that complicated, so yes I might have one for you to test tonight.

    No, but I can use a prebuilt kernel. However, that will only be a last resort.

    no need to use a prebuilt. i got a kernel building perfectly fine, just not pushed any of my changes to github that's required to build it.

    i'll do it once i got CM built and out

    btw doing 4.3 is pointless until 4.1 boots

    to test my theory that 4.3 won't boot

    FULL LOGS if you DO NOT know how to logcat then don't bother with this, also kmsg's and everything else

    THE BOOT.IMG INSIDE THE ZIP NEEDS TO BE FLASHED IF YOU ARE NOT S-OFF'D

    I'm running a test build now with the files I pulled from another developer's repos. I know it's gonna need a ton of work but if it actually builds and boots then there won't be much left to do.

    I'd be willing to donate some money via paypal, you should post your email so people interested could help you get your hands on a first. They go for bargain bin prices on ebay.
